What if the hero of The Crucible were actually the villain? An innovative and powerful new voice in the theatrical landscape, Kimberly Belflower flips the script on Arthur Miller’s classic play and examines the license and agency of the young women at the center of the Salem witch trials. Set in present-day rural Georgia, this play follows a group of high school students as they grapple with their own secrets, scandals, and identities. A provocative (sometimes witty) and timely exploration of gender, history, and truth, John Proctor is the Villain will challenge your assumptions, spark deep conversation, and ignite your imagination.
